   Brent Bandow was hired as a Maintenance Worker I at the ball fields for the summer.
   Cheryl Curry from the Port Authority and county commissioners Cyndi Johnson and Sandy Broesder were on hand to discuss a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG).
   The purpose of the Monday hearing and discussion was to publically show what the program can do. It is a required step in applying for the grant. The counties CDBG is tied up helping Brady with water projects and since the city seldom applies for this type of grant, the county would like the city to put in for it and use it to help defray remodeling costs at the new Senior Center building on Virginia Street.
   In a monthly report, Chief Gary Dent told the council that the police department received 151 calls in April.
   In part, there were six domestic calls, 19 pubic assists, two rides given to patrons from local bars, a gas line was broken near PVS, tires were slashed on a number of vehicles, there were 18 MIPs written up and three adults were cited for buying alcohol for minors.
   Public Works Director Rich Anderson said the crews did some snow removal from the recent spring blizzard, crews were getting ready for ally clean up and they are working on sewer cleaning.
   Curry gave a brief Port Authority report, saying she is helping with the growth policy and that 609 paper surveys randomly went out in the mail and she is looking at funding possibilities for the Senior Center.
   The next regular meeting of the council will be on May 18, 7:30 p.m. in city hall, 411 ½ S. Main Street.
